Occupation Iraq: Bush Spied on Maliki

Why not? He is spying on every one else!

"U.S. spied on Iraqi prime minister, Bob Woodward book says

There's news in the new book by Bob Woodward, and it's not going to make life easier for the White House or John McCain's campaign to move in there:

The Bush administration has run an "extensive spying operation" in Iraq, focused on the Iraqi prime minister -- one of President Bush's biggest allies there.

According to the Washington Post's account, scheduled to appear on Page One of the paper's Friday edition, the United States has spied on Prime Minister Nouri Maliki, his staff and others in the government there.

How extensively?

"We know everything he says," the Post account says one of Woodward's sources told him.

The book, coming out Monday, is "The War Within: A Secret White House History, 2006-2008."
